Tornado Quest Science Links For February 8 -15, 2016

Greeting all! I hope everyone’s enjoying their February and regardless of what kind of weather you’re getting, 2016 has gotten off to a good start for you. It’s been a busy week for me so, without further delay, let’s get started on this week’s post!

For your consideration, here are this week’s links…

SCIENCE EDUCATION

Though this article is geared towards education in general, I strongly feel it is especially apt for students of the sciences. “Educating An Original Thinker.”

TECHNOLOGY/SOCIAL MEDIA

Instagram has finally decided to roll out support for multiple accounts!

ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE/RENEWABLE ENERGY

Will Oklahoma finally get serious about the fracking induced earthquakes in 2016? Time will tell.

A riveting and somber story that, in order to feel the true duress, is a must-listen. “When Every Drop Of Water Could Be Poison: A Flint Mother’s Story.”

These five states in the USA lead with solar power initiatives. Sun belt states? Not necessarily so.

A very novel idea! Engineers have discovered a way to harvest wind energy from trees.

A disconcerting read on the worldwide water shortages that could affect billions.

Two very important reads on the inexorable link between climate, air quality, and public health.

ATMOSPHERIC SCIENCE

The latest NOAA State Of The Climate summary for January, 2016 is out. Below is a map of select significant climate anomalies for the first month of 2016.

Poor countries aren’t the only ones that will suffer from the ramifications of climate change.

A good read on better communication with those who are climate change deniers…even though the use of “denier” is somehow considered “counter-productive.”

With mounting evidence in support of climate change, a new era of climate exploration by atmospheric scientists is coming into play.

A very good and surprising essay on the challenges faced by an environmentalist who went to Alabama, USA to talk about climate change.

Adding insult to injury, the southwest USA is entering a drier climate state which will make the ongoing drought a permanent way of life.

That’s a wrap for this post!

I’d like to welcome my new followers on social media…glad you’re along for the fun!

Cheers!
